Hip Hop Can Help Students. NASA & Honeywell Kicks Off The Spring 2015!

NASA and Honeywell kicks off the spring 2015 tour of “FMA Live! Forces in Motion” Monday with shows at Talley Middle School in Wilmington, Delaware, marking the 11th year of this innovative collaboration designed to ignite students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

FMA Live! is a high-energy, live stage show that features actors, hip-hop dance, music videos, interactive scientific demonstrations and video interviews with NASA scientists to teach Sir Isaac Newton’s three laws of motion and universal laws of gravity. The name of the show comes from Newton’s second law of motion: force = mass x acceleration.

“This innovative collaboration between NASA and Honeywell has been immensely successful over the past decade,” said Donald James, NASA’s associate administrator for Education. “The combination of exciting, NASA-unique content and a dynamic stage performance is a proven formula for helping students grasp the fundamentals of physics. Together, we are inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and explorers.”

Research shows interactive, experiential learning is the most effective way to engage students in STEM studies. A major goal of FMA Live! is to compel middle school students to pursue STEM academic coursework and ultimately seek careers in STEM-related fields.

Since its inception in 2004, FMA Live! has reached more than 400,000 middle school students across the United States, as well as students in Canada and Mexico.

Over the course of the next 10 weeks, the show, under the direction of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, will travel to 30 public, private and Department of Defense-affiliated middle schools in 10 states: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. FMA Live! will return in the fall with a tour of Midwest states.

“As a technology-based company, it’s our goal to prepare the next generation of engineers, scientists and innovators, but to do that, you have to capture a student’s interest,” said Mike Bennett, president of Honeywell Hometown Solutions. “With FMA Live! Forces in Motion, students are actually experiencing science and technology firsthand, rather than reading about it in a text book. This show helps students understand how science and technology apply to their everyday lives.”

NASA is committed to using the agency’s unique assets, programs and facilities to inspire students to pursue STEM studies and careers. NASA’s Office of Education collaborates with a wide variety of organizations from academia, industry and government to reach learners and educators across the United States.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
